Integrate Intelligence X into your project: Use the Software Development Kit

Published on December 20, 2018 by

We are excited to announce our new Software Development Kit. It is free and can be used by anyone to integrate Intelligence X into your project. Whether it’s a website, a service or a local program, you can use our versatile API for free to enrich your data and provide additional context.

The SDK is publishd here:

It contains these parts:

When to use the API

There are many use cases for using the API of Intelligence X:

  1. Website or online service: If you run a service that shows information about anything like IPs, domains, Bitcoin addresses you can use our search to enrich it (see later example about the Bitcoin address).
  2. SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) or other reporting or logging tool: Query the API if there is for example mentions of your company on the darknet and generate an event in your software
  3. Threat intelligence product: Provide additional context of where observables such as IPs and domains appear
  4. Research and open-source intelligence: Use the API to quickly find appearances of your targets and focus on the actual analysis
  5. Discovery: There is a feature called “Phonebook” which shows you for example all URLs and emails belonging to a particular domain.

The Intelligence X search supports these selectors:

  • Email address
  • Domain, including wildcards like *
  • URL
  • IPv4 and IPv6
  • CIDRv4 and CIDRv6
  • Phone Number
  • Bitcoin address
  • MAC address
  • IPFS Hash
  • UUID
  • Simhash
  • Credit card number
  • IBAN

There are many use cases – whether for your product, your website or just internally. The SDK is free to use.

HTML example

The HTML code is just 100 lines and allows to integrate the search engine into your website. Here is an example search for a Bitcoin address 1GHKDgQX7hqTM7mMmiiUvgihGMHtvNJqTv that was recently used as part of the bomb threat emails.

If you operate a Bitcoin blockchain explorer then you can use the API to query any results for the Bitcoin address and show it to your users directly on your service to provide them additional context.

Command-line program

There is a command-line program “ix” as part of the SDK, which takes the first argument and queries all the results. Its source code is part of the SDK (it is written in Go) and can be compiled both for Windows, Linux and Mac.


We are happy to add support for additional programming languages to our SDK as well as other features and functionality.
